Re: Custom Sage Eddie Bauer Limited Edition LL 590-3
Most of the Special or Limited issue rods are of the most value to the owners who enjoy fishing them. Unless there is something really special about about a rod they seldom gain value with age, there are however exceptions.
As for fishability, I would guess it to be a fine fishing rod. I have a bunch of rods ranging in age from 1950's to a brand new hardy Spey, all of them regardless of original cost make fine rods to fish with.
